    We have an OB here that writes brief notes on his prenatal sheets--plans, meds, etc. Recently, on a lot of his patients, there is the notation:
    "Brief sex--sono next week"

    Okay, that is some pretty personalized care there, doc! :uhoh21: :uhoh21:

    i was assigned in urology department few years ago in KSA, i was about to go for a lunch break when one of the doctors came in and ask about my patient. the incharge said she will tell the doctor what needs to be done since i handed the patients over to her beforehand. when i came back, as i am reading the new doctor's notes, i laughed with what he have written. he wrote: Patient to continue with NS bladder irrigation. nurse went to the cafeteria when i arrived. didnt assist me when needed. doctors are hungry too! i asked the incharge about what happened, she said the doctor is very upset. he didnt asked for help when the incharge asked him. it was Ramadan season that time and eating isnt allowed when the sun is up with exceptions of non muslim nurses.

    4oz whiskey on ice at 4p daily. For my no lie 98 year old little lady. Brought it to her every day. If I was running late she'd put her call light on for it. She lived until she was 102 and then some. I still miss her!
